The traditional Orthodox Christmas Alilo procession was held in Tbilisi on Monday with thousands of worshippers marching through the centre of the city from Rose Revolution Square to Holy Trinity Church.

During the procession, an icon depicting the birth of Christ, as well as crosses and flags were carried by representatives of the clergy.

“This is a very good tradition. It is so interesting and unusual that it was impossible to miss it,” one of the participants said.
